Exclusive: Ciara Talks “I Can Do That” And Importance of Humility

Ciara and Nicole Scherzinger team up on tonight’s I Can Do That and attempt to pull off an act performed by the Quiddlers. Ciara, who recently completed her tour in support of her latest album Jackietalked to us about her love for I Can Do That and also elaborated on her successful music career.

Though she and Scherzinger may look adorable trying to pull off their latest performance, there’s a ton of physical demands in essentially playing mini-me versions of themselves. “What we’re doing this week is really fun and funny,” says Ciara. “But it is very strenuous. I can’t even lie – some things look really cute and cool but then you realize when you’re trying to learn it – you actually underestimate the actual challenge that comes with it.”

Taking a shot with “I Can Do That” definitely put Ciara (and fellow members Cheryl Burke, Scherzinger, Jeff Dye, Joe Jonas, and actor Alan Ritchson) out of their respect comfort zones, and she’s more thankful for that journey. “I walked away feeling like there is nothing I can’t do, to be very honest,” she adds.

Along with the ton of work that obviously goes into her music and choreography, and Ciara also managed to rise above the potentially hazardous pitfalls of fame. A focused dedication to her craft, along with a deep level of thankfulness, has served her well.

“I just believe humility is a key to success,” says Ciara, who was recently announced the face of Robert Cavalli’s Fall-Winter line. “And I really plan to and hope to be around as an entertainer, as a businesswoman and doing all this good stuff. I’m just truly grateful for every blessing that has come my way.”

“I Can Do That” airs tonight on NBC (10 pm et/pt).
